CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – A member of the Campbell Civil Service Commission has been removed and a criminal investigation is underway.
Anthony Matash was removed from the commission by City Council on Wednesday night. Police learned that a water department employee was given a Civil Service exam earlier this month. There was apparently no public notice of the test.
WKBN has also obtained a police department memo that speculates that answers were provided to that applicant.
Campbell Police Chief Drew Rauzan says, “Our detectives are trying to discern why the test was given why this individual was given a test, why the civil services commission was involved. I think we just want to get the message out here that from speeding to civil services, just follow the law and the police department will never be in your business.”
Chief Rauzan says the city prosecutor will soon be involved in the investigation.
